Well, last year was a busy one for me, I released 3 books: the final two pieces of the Moon Stealer quartet, as well as the first book in a new series featuring teen detective Lawrence Pinkley, with illustrations by the brilliant Dylan Gibson. Just in case you missed them:
I’m sorry I’ve been quiet on the blog for the past month, but I have had a little rest to recharge my batteries, remind my family who I am and enjoy the festive season with them. But, now I’m back and I have many exciting projects planned for the year ahead.
If you are a fan of Pinkley’s humorous adventures, you will be pleased to know that I am currently talking with Dylan about a second book which I am aiming to release in December. Plus, I will probably write another few short stories featuring him too!
April see’s the release of the Author’s Marketing Yearbook 2014 – the definitive resource book for authors, writers and publishers. It contains marketing information you won’t find anywhere else, together with hundreds of internet links and websites to make marketing easier and more productive. The Yearbook will be updated every year. If you haven’t visited the accompanying website that goes with the Yearbook, pop over and have a look. I trawl the internet every week to find all the relevant information that authors can use to promote themselves.
Hopefully around July / Aug, I will be releasing a brand new book – Doctor Gabriel Grey, The Finest Dragon Slayer in Westminster. The book is set in London in the 1600’s when there was great division between the rich of Westminster and the poor within the City of London. And of course, there are some Dragons! I will be sharing the first chapter of this book as some point in the future, so keep your eyes open.
At the end of the year, an omnibus edition of all four Moon Stealer books will also be released containing additional information and maps to go with the story that weren’t in the originals.
So, there you go – that’s what I have in store for you all this year. Lots of exciting projects, some of which I have already started.
